INTERVIEW: VanLadyLove

Given their irresistibly intergalactic hybrid of rock and electronic music, it wouldn’t be a surprise to find out VanLadyLove actually arrived on earth from a different planet… However, it turns out the trio—Travis Van Hoff (Lead Vocals, Keys, Guitar), Steele Saldutti (Bass, Ableton), and Jordan Clark (Keys, Guitar)—call Utah home. Since their 2012 formation, a string of undeniable songs has fueled the group’s rapid rise from local prominence to national buzz. Along the way, they scored an impressive total of six high-profile placements on TLC in addition to a cameo…

Andrew Tkaczyk (The Ghost Inside) Shares Recovery Update

It is always great to see people rise above their troubles, and The Ghost Inside have had their fair share recently. A horrific bus crash late last year rendered much of the band and its crew injured, especially drummer Andrew Tkaczyk, who lost a leg. Tkaczyk has been working exceptionally hard to get back at it, and he recently shared a video of himself getting behind the kit again during a physical therapy session. The clip is truly emotional, and shows how powerful music can be – especially to those…

INTERVIEW: Black Bottom Lighters

Every once in a while, you find a hidden gem in your hometown. This hidden gem for me is Black Bottom Lighters. The six piece reggae rock group, hailing from Glendale, Arizona, considers themselves to be “desert reggae”. What that is exactly, I do not know. What I do know is that I’ve had their songs stuck in my head since their set at the McDowell Mountain Music Festival. With their captivating lyricists and wicked drum fills, Black Bottom Lighters are a band that the world needs to look out…

ALBUM REVIEW: Zach E. West ’28 Years Later’

I write with a bit of sadness that I’m reviewing 28 Years Later, quite possibly the final album Zach E. West has created. For almost two years he has worked on this album, and I must say it is a work of art that must have paid off for him. He has a talent for expressing himself in ways that we all can understand and resonate with – not to mention he continues producing music that is absolutely mind-blowing to the average listener. I say this because, it’s not every…

ALBUM REVIEW: The Nearly Deads ‘Invisible Tonight’

 The album begins with pounding piano keys before Theresa Jeane’s killer vocals kick in, announcing “we’re over” in an epic way on “I Said.” The passion behind this track is awe inspiring. From the electrifying music to the biting, harsh lyrics, the song blasts from your speakers like a fist. “Invisible Tonight,” the title track of the album, keeps the energetic, biting tone of the album going, calling out a controlling and demanding partner. It’s the type of song I can picture being performed at Warped Tour to a crowd…

ALBUM REVIEW: Travis Hayes ‘Young Daze’

Albums about being young seem to be a dime a dozen, but when you hear one and it just sticks with you, that’s when you know it’s good. Travis Hayes’ Young Daze will entrance you and prove to be the refreshing, crisp sound you’ve been looking for. The opening track, “Song From a Movie,” really does sound like just that; a track that’s been in one of your favorite films. It’s entirely instrumental, reminiscent of the soundtrack to the climax of a rom-com (enter Billy Crystal running down Manhattan’s streets on New…

ALBUM REVIEW: The Maine ‘Forever Halloween Deluxe Edition’

 As if The Maine hadn’t entranced us enough with Forever Halloween (which has remained on the Alternative Press charts since its initial release), they went and made a deluxe version of the album, complete with new tracks. Needless to say, no one had to twist my arm to give it a listen. The deluxe version of Forever Halloween starts off exactly the same, with the classic vibe riding high on “Take What You Can Carry.” One thing I love about deluxe albums? I can sing along to a majority of…
